SJ6903 : Blists Hill Victorian Town - fireworks!

Blists Hill Victorian Town - fireworks!
Blists Hill Victorian Town - fireworks!
This was on the occasion of the annual fireworks display and some 3000 people were admitted by ticket only at 18:00 hours to observe a fireworks display set to music.

One of the other treats to be seen was a rare running of the ironworks and this shows a reheated mass of scrap wrought iron being struck by the large steam hammer. Hot slag was expelled in all directions and the worker moving the work-piece is surrounded by a fiery welter. This was about the second blow and the first had been even more spectacular. The darkness of the surrounding night enhances the spectacle.
The picture was taken without flash, hand held on a Lumix TZ8 and is a depiction of an industrial scene that is alien to most people.
